DECISIONS AND ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS 



SUNCREST LUMBER COMPANY, ET. AL., v. TENNESSEE AND NORTH 
CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY. 

ORDER. 

This complaint being made informally and submitted by mail to defendants, 
shows that the Tennessee and North Carolina Railroad Company has discontinued 
Sunday train service between Sunburst, N. C, and Canton, N. C; that this service 
was a great accommodation to laborers and employees of a manufacturing industry 
operated by the Suncrest Lumber Company at Sunburst, N. C, and living at 
points on the Murphy Branch of the Southern Railway; that the discontinuance 
of this service causes such employees to lose a whole day's work on Monday in 
order to reach their place of employment ; and it being the opinion of the Commis- 
sion that this service should be rendered to the general public; it is, therefore 

Ordered, That the Tennessee and North Carolina Railroad Company operate 
Sunday service for passengers over their line, leaving Sunburst in time to make 
connection with train Number 17 on the Southern Railway going west, passing 
Canton about 9:40 a. m., and leaving Canton after arrival of train Number 16, 
on the Southern Railway, going east; this service to be in addition to the passenger 
train service now operated by the said Tennessee and North Carolina Railroad 
Company, and to begin on Sunday, February 23, 1919. 

(S) W. T. Lee, 

This, February 16, 1919. Chairman.

6 N. C. CORPOKATION COMMISSION 

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA CORPORATION COMMISSION IN RE 
APPLICATION WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY. 



Lee, Chairman: It appearing to the Corporation Commission of North Caro- 
lina that Congress has passed an Act by which the control of the Postmaster-General 
of the United States over the telegraph systems of the country will cease on July 
31, 1919, and effective August 1, 1919, the operation of telegraph lines will revert 
back to the owners thereof; and it also appearing that the Postmaster-General, 
during the continuance of his control over the wire systems of the country, made a 
thorough investigation of the cost of operation and established rates which he him- 
self states "are barely sufficient to meet the cost of operation," and this Commission 
desiring to enable the telegraph companies to meet such operating costs and knowing 
full well that the rates existing in this State prior to the war are insufficient; it is 
therefore, 

Ordered, That the telegraph companies doing business in the State of North 
Carolina are hereby authorized to continue to charge as rates between all points 
within the State of North Carolina on and after August 1, 1919, the rates' hereto-

States.

8 N. C. COEPOKATION COMMISSION • 

RE ASHEVILLE POWER AND LIGHT COMPANY, APPLICATION FOR 
AUTHORITY TO INCREASE STREET CAR FARES ON ITS LINES 
IN THE CITY OF ASHEVILLE AND SUBURBS FROM FIVE TO SIX 
CENTS, WITH CONTINUATION OF TWO AND A HALF CENTS FARE 
FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN. 

ORDER. 

Petition filed August 1, 1919. 

Hearing at office of Commission in Raleigh September 5, 1919. 
Appearances: Julius C. Martin for petitioner; Thos. J. Harkins and George 
Pennell for the City of Asheville. 

Maxwell, Commissioner: The material facts set out in the petition are : 

1. That the value of its street railway property is $1,063,998.61, based upon the 
inventoried replacement value placed upon it by Ford, Bacon & Davis, appraisal 
engineers, of New York, in 1912, when the property was acquired by its present 
owners, plus additional capital put into it since that time. 

2. That while it has delayed asking for an increased fare, while other street rail- 
way companies in the State have gone to seven cents, in the hope that it might be 
able to continue successfully to operate the five cents fare, that it finds by reason 
of inadequate depreciation reserve in the past, and by continually increasing operat- 
ing expenses, it will not be able to do so. 

3. That its rate of return upon the 1912 basis of value of its property was only 
3.92 per cent for the year ending May 31, 1919, and that with six cents fare it will 
be not more than 5.53 per cent the next year. 

4. That it has had to meet, beginning June 1, of this year, a third increase, since 
June 1, 1916, in pay of employees, which last increase will add twenty-five thousand 
dollars to its operating expenses for the next year. The scale paid trainmen in 1913 
was 19 to 25 cents per hour; 1916, 21 to 27; 1918, 31 to 37; June 1, 1919, 38 to 44 
cents per hour. Two cents per hour of the last increase was made contingent for 
its continuance upon authority to increase fares to six cents. 

Statement of operating statistics tending to support these contentions were filed 
with the petition. 

Copy of these papers were served upon the Mayor and Board of Commissioners 
of the City of Asheville, who filed answer resisting the petition, and asked for time 
to have an audit made of the books of the company. This was granted and an order 
made by the Corporation Commission for the petitioning company to submit its 
books and records to such investigation. Mr. Geo. G. Scott, Certified Public 
Accountant, of Charlotte, North Carolina, made the investigation for the City of 
Asheville. The differences shown by the audit, material to this investigation, 
consist of three items: The accountant took the annual period ending June 30, 
1919, instead of year ending May 31, 1919, which showed $1,803.18 additional operat- 
ing revenue, and found that two items of contingent expense — taxes and injuries 
and damages — had been reserved in excess of actual payment to the amount of 
$9,173.27 for both items combined. Adding these items to its profits, and reserving 
the amount of depreciation set out in its petition, we would have a net return for 
the year ending June 30, 1919, of 4.99 per cent upon the 1912 basis of value of its 
property, plus additions, with an additional operating expense of $25,000 for increased 
wages to be taken care of for the coming year. 

Based upon past experience, there are only two uncertain elements of fact in the 
case before us — the value of the property on which it is entitled to earn a return, 
and the amount of depreciation that should be set aside annually to maintain the 
property. The petitioner alleges that it set out the 1912 basis of value not because 



DECISIONS AND ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS 9 

it represented the proper basis for this purpose, but because it considered that upon 
i;hat conservative basis it would be entitled to the increase asked for. It is common 
knowledge that replacement value is materially greater now than in 1912, and per- 
haps a hundred per cent greater. Its property will be valued for taxation with 
reference to present value rather than with reference to any period in the past, 
and unquestionably its depreciation must be calculated with reference to replace- 
ment values rather than original cost, as the purpose of depreciation is to provide 
a fund sufficient to replace the several elements making up the property as they 
become unserviceable and inefficient from use, age or obsolescence. 

The company has been setting up a depreciation account of $35,000 annually, 
since it acquired this property in 1912, for its combined properties of street railway, 
light, and power and gas properties, of which only $17,000 would allocate to the 
street railway property on a gross earnings basis. It must be evident that this is 
inadequate. Its general manager testified that much larger amounts would be 
required in the near future to restore and maintain former condition of the property 
and to meet impending demands of the City of Asheville for track changes and 
improvements on its streets, and that five per cent of the 1912 basis of value of its 
property, plus improvements, or $53,199.93, is a moderate amount for this purpose. 

Depreciation of property is a real, and not a fanciful thing, and depreciation 
accounts should serve a more useful purpose than to be set up in operating state- 
ments to justify rate increases. Such amount as is reasonably necessary to meet 
actual depreciation in the property of a public service company should be set aside 
from its earnings annually for this purpose, and such amounts as are set up in 
operating statements to justify rate increases should be set aside as a trust fund, 
with interest accruing to it, so that the public service may not be impaired by delay 
in replacing unserviceable property, nor be made more expensive by additions to 
capitalization, upon which return is demanded, for such replacements. 

Prescribing rates to be charged by a public service company is one of the grave 
responsibilities of sovereignty. It involves, on the one hand, responsibility for rates 
that will permit adequate wages, efficient service, and preserve without impair- 
ment capital invested in these necessary enterprises, and such rates of return as 
will be persuasive to additional capital as the convenience of the public requires 
additional facilities and service, and on the other hand, the responsibility for determ- 
ining that the public is not overcharged for such service. 

The Commission is not provided with disinterested engineering assistance for 
determining in the most satisfactory way, the doubtful engineering questions pre- 
sented. It cannot, however, shut itself in from general information of the pre- 
carious character of street railway investments; that sixteen per cent of the street 
railway mileage in the country has either been abandoned or is operated by bankrupt 
companies, and that the purchasing power of a nickel has been deserted by about 
all its former friends except mint tablets, chiclets and chewing gum. Whether it 
have a return engagement resides in the breast of the Oracle. 

If earnings above amount allowed for depreciation be not excessive, and if the 
amount -allowed for depreciation be properly protected for return to the service of 
street railway patrons without addition to capitalization, little injury can result, 
and if experience demonstrates there is any, it can be removed. It is therefore 

Ordered, That the Asheville Power and Light Company, from and after the 
effective date of this order, allocate to its street railway department a proportion 
of its depreciation fund upon the basis of relation of gross earnings of its street 
railway, electric light and power and gas business for the year 1918; that the sum 
of $53,199.93 annually be set aside from the earnings of its street railway business 



10 N. C. COEPOKATION COMMISSION 

and added to this depreciation account, and that the interest from so much of 
said fund as is not properly expended for replacement of depreciable property be 
credited to such fund. It is further 

Ordered, That from and after October 1, 1919, the Asheville Power and Light 
Company be authorized to charge six (6) cents for passengers other than school 
children, and two and one-half cents for school children, for transportation of 
passengers over its lines in the City of Asheville and suburbs.

DECISIONS AND ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS 11 

SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY AND 
ASHEVILLE TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY TO THE 
CORPORATION COMMISSION— PETITION FOR AUTHORITY TO 
CONTINUE IN EFFECT GOVERNMENT-MADE LOCAL AND LONG 
DISTANCE TELEPHONE RATES. 

By the Commission: In above entitled proceedings it appears that operation 
of telephone companies by the Government terminated July 30, 1919; that during 
the period of Government operation certain changes and increases in rates for 
both local and long distance service were made by order of the department of the 
Federal Government in charge of their operation, and that the act of Congress under 
which the telephone properties were restored to their owners provided that the 
rates put into effect by authoritj^ of the United States Government should be con- 
tinued until December 1, 1919, unless found upon investigation to be unreasonable. 

The petitioning companies ask that a general order be made by the Corpora- 
tion Commission that will permit them to continue the Government rates after 
December 1, 1919, for an indeterminate period, or until such time as that oper- 
ating experience under these rates may show that a further change in rates may 
appropriately be made. In the absence of a general order of this character the 
legal rates they would be required to observe after December 1 would be pre- 
war rates. 

On this petition a general hearing was held on September 25, 1919. Elaborate 
testimony and exhibits were presented by petitioners, the net result of which may 
be summed up in statement that the net earnings of the Southern Bell Telephone 
and Telegraph Company for the year 1918 in North Carolina were 2.13 per cent; 
that for the first seven months of 1919 they earned in each month, except April, 
less than the compensation to be paid them by the Government for the use of the 
property, and that for the month of July, 1919, in which all of the increased rates 
were in effect, they earned less than the expense of operation. The testimony as to 
operations of the Asheville Telephone and Telegraph Company was of a similar 
character. 

Although public notice of the hearing was given in the press no one appeared at 
the hearing but the representatives of the petitioning companies. After the hearing 
representatives of a number of North Carolina cities investigated the evidence 
presented, and, excepting Asheville and Winston-Salem, withdrew objection to 
granting the form of order requested. 

Upon the facts appearing we do not see how such an order could be, or should be, 
denied. The petitioners are entitled to charge such rates as will give them a fair 
return upon the property devoted to the public service. The rates now in effect 
have the sanction of high government authority. They have not been in effect 
long enough to justify any final conclusion as to their remunerative character. 
Preliminary experience does not indicate that they will be excessively remunerative. 
All the elements going into the rendering of telephone service have been subject to 
the general rule of advancing costs. The interests of the public will be protected 
by requiring that appropriate reports of operating experience under these rates 
be made to the Commission and available to the public. The rate for any class of 
service may be brought in issue before the Commission by any municipality or any 
patron at any time. 

It is ordered, That the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company and 
the Asheville Telephone and Telegraph Company be, and they are hereby, author- 
ized to continue in effect as their maximum scales of toll and exchange rates and 



12 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION 

other charges in North Carohna the toll and exchange rates and other charges 
prescribed by the Federal Government, and now on file with this Commission and 
at present in force and effect in North Carolina, until further order by this Com- 
mission. Any municipality interested or any individual using the telephone service 
shall have leave to file petition for reduction or modification of said rates. 

Ordered further, That the petitioning companies file with this Commission 
during the month of January, 1920, in a form consonant with the report shown in 
the testimony as Exhibit No. 10, statement showing the operations of these com- 
panies as a whole in the State of North Carolina, and separately for each exchange, 
for the period July 30, 1919, to January 1, 1920, and quarterly thereafter, until 
further order. 

This the 7th day of November, 1919.

IN RE CONNECTION BETWEEN PASSENGER TRAINS OF SOUTHERN

By the Commission : After hearing parties in interest, and to make more certain

IN RE PETITION WINSTON-SALEM GAS COMPANY FOR AUTHORITY 
TO INCREASE RATES FOR GAS. 

By the Commission: The petition in this case seeks authority to increase rates 
for gas in Winston-Salem 30 cents per thousand feet, or to increase the net rates 
charged for the first 10,000 feet from $1.50 to $1.80 per thousand, with the same 
rate of increase for quantities above 10,000 feet. 

The increase sought was resisted by the City Administration of Winston-Salem, 
representing the users of gas of that city. Two hearings were held at the office of 
the Commission, and from the testimony presented it appears: 

That for a period of eleven months of operations in 1919, after charging to operat- 
ing expenses interest on its bonded and other indebtedness and depreciation of 
$6,495, it showed a deficit for the eleven months of $9,385, or a net loss of 143^ 
cents per thousand feet of gas sold for the eleven months' period. 

The company put $40,000 of additional capital expenditure into the plant during 
the year 1919, and must make a much larger expenditure than that during the 
present year to sufficiently enlarge its plant and distribution system to take care 
of the largely increased volume of business, and it is contended that the additional 
capital necessary to finance these additions cannot be secured on an operating 
statement that shows a deficit, unless authority for a rate increase can be secured. 

The representatives of the City of Winston-Salem do not concede the necessity 
for, and object to, the increase in rates asked for, but their opposition is based mainly 
upon the poor quality of gas service furnished by the petitioner, particularly during 
recent months. It is pretty well established by the testimony that the unsatis- 
factory service is due not to the quality of the gas furnished but the inadequacy 
of gas mains to permit a sufficient pressure of gas, particularly during the "peak 
lead" hours, when the largest number of customers are using gas at one time. This 
is not a condition pecuHar to Winston-Salem, but a similar condition developed 
during the last winter in many cities in this and other states, due to an abnormal 
increase in quantity of gas consumed, and this in part due to the scarcity and higher 
price of other fuels. Since the hearing in this case the petitioner has given order 
for piping for supplementing its mains, and is under agreement to install, as soon as 
material can be secured and the labor performed, the following additions to its 
plant and distribution system: 

Two large purifiers. 
Two P. & A. tar extractors. 
One No. 5 exhauster. 
One water gas scrubber. 



DECISIONS AND ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS 19 

One station motor. 
One 300 N. cu. ft. gas holder. 
One motor and car for water gas machine. 
One 6-ft. generator. 
Three water pumps. 

One 16 or 20 in. governor coal unloading device. 
2,000 ft. 16 in. pipe. 
1,600 ft. 12 in. pipe. 
6,000 ft. 8 in. pipe. 
1,100 ft. 6 in. pipe. 
10,000 ft. 4 in. pipe. 

Necessary valves, pipe and fittings for connecting up new equipment at plant. 

The petitioner and other gas companies of the State are under notice that the 
Commission now has an investigation under way, in cooperation with the Bureau 
of Standards of the United States Government, which has for its purpose the adop- 
tion of official standards to be maintained by gas companies, covering both quality 
of gas and maintenance of pressure. This investigation should be completed within 
the next sixty days, and when these standards are adopted any gas company in the 
State furnishing a service that falls below these standards of quality or pressure, 
will be required to rebate its patrons in the proportion that its service falls below 
standard. 

It is also in evidence that many complaints of service arising in Winston-Salem 
are due to local troubles in the service pipes running from the curb lines into the 
premises of the users. It has been the custom of the petitioner to charge customers 
for any service in blowing out or cleaning out these service pipes. It is the most 
general practice for this service to be performed by the supplying company, and 
it is made a condition of the rate increase herein authorized that this service be 
hereafter performed without charge by the Winston-Salem Gas Company. 

Upon the record in this case the Commission is convinced that the petitioner is 
entitled to some increase in its rates. It cannot be expected to continue furnishing 
service at a rate that does not cover actual cost of service and interest on its bonds, 
nor can it be expected to secure capital to finance necessary additions upon such a 
financial showing. The exact rate that should be charged can rarely be determined 
with entire satisfaction. 

The net rate of $1.80 asked for in the petition seems, by comparison, to be high. 
There is some general evidence that the peak of high costs generally has been reached 
and that a decline has begun. Upon consideration of the whole record, it is 

Ordered, That the Winston-Salem Gas Company be authorized to charge, 
effective with its meter readings for the month of March, 1920, and until July 1, 
1920, the following schedule of rates, less a discount of 5 cents per thousand feet for 
payment of bills before the tenth of each month : 

For the first 10,000 cu ft $1.75 

For the second 10,000 cu. ft 1.50 

For 20,000 cu. ft. or over 1.25 

With a minimum charge of 75 cents per month. 

And that this cause be continued for such further order with respect to rates and 
service as may be found to be appropriate upon showing made at that time.

CAROLINA TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY TO THE COM- 
MISSION—IN RE APPLICATION FOR AUTHORITY TO INCREASE 
TELEPHONE EXCHANGE RATES IN FAYETTEVILLE, KINSTON, 
WASHINGTON, WILSON, AND TARBORO. 

By the Commission: The petitioning company seeks authority to increase its 
rates for telephone service in Fayetteville, Kinston, Washington, Wilson, and 



22 N, C. CORPORATION COMMISSION 

Tarboro, or to increase its rates to the standard authorized generally, for exchanges 
of like size, by the Postmaster-General during the period of Government operation. 
This company did not take advantage of the opportunity offered at that time to 
increase its rates, in the hope that it might be able to continue the old schedule of 
rates, but continually increasing costs of labor and material during the last year 
has resulted in this application. The rates proposed have been approved by the 
governing board in several of the cities interested, and after notice was resisted only 
by the City of Fayetteville. That city was represented by attorneys on the date set 
for hearing, and at their request hearing was continued to give opportunity to have 
audit made of books of the company. This was done and the audit disclosed that 
with the increased rates asked for, and after crediting Fayetteville with all of the 
long distance business handled at that point, the return for 1920 would be less than 
a fair return on their property. 

The company now has developed plans under way for investment of about three 
hundred thousand dollars in additions during the present year to take care of in- 
creased demands for service. 

Upon consideration of the record, it is 

Ordered, That, beginning May 1, 1920, the Carolina Telephone and Telegraph 
Company be authorized to charge the rates hereinafter set out: 

For the Fayetteville, Kinston, Washington, and Wilson exchanges: 

Business, flat rate, special $4.00 per month 

Business, inward 3.50 per month 

Business, flat rate, duplex 3.50 per month 

Business, extension 1.00 per month 

Residence, flat rate, special 2.50 per month 

Residence, flat rate, duplex 2.00 per month 

Residence, extension .50 per month 

For Tarboro exchange :

IN RE APPLICATION OF GOLDSBORO ELECTRIC RAILWAY COMPANY 
FOR AUTHORITY TO INCREASE FARES FOR STREET CAR SERVICE. 

By the Commission: The operation of street railway service in the City of 
Goldsboro has never been profitable. After the lines were laid cars operated un- 
profitably for a time service was discontinued, and to prevent rails from being taken 
up and to reinstate service, the property was taken over by the Goldsboro Electric 
Railway Company. A part of the stock was taken by the City of Goldsboro and the 
balance distributed among a large number of small stockholders in the City of 
Goldsboro. The city is advancing money for improvements on car lines and when 
this improvement is completed, the city will own a majority of the stock. 

The operation of the lines for five months of this year shows total expenditures 
for operating cost of $9,360 and total revenue received $7,256 leaving a deficit of 
$2,104. During this period it was operated on a 7c fare. 

The Commission is asked to approve the schedule of fares hereinafter set out and 
it appears that if this schedule of fares had been charged during the period of five 
months and the same number of passengers had been carried, the total receipts 



28 N. C. COEPOEATION COMMISSION 

would have been S10,761 or $1,401 in excess of the bare costs of operation. The 
Board of Aldermen of the City of Goldsboro has, by resolution, approved the new 
schedule of fares which the Commission has been asked to authorize. 

It is therefore 

Ordered, That the Goldsboro Electric Railway Company be authorized to charge 
passenger fares according to the following schedule : 

Cash fares for persons over 12 years of age $0.10 

Books of 25 tickets for persons over 12 years of age 2.25 

Strips of 4 tickets for persons over 12 years of age .38 

Books of 25 tickets for school children over 12 years of age 1.75 

Fares for children from 5 to 12 years of age, inclusive .05

32 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION 

IN RE INHERITANCE TAX ON ESTATE OF JOHANN B. HOLST, 

DECEASED. 

By THE Commission: The late Johann B. Hoist died a resident of Buncombe 
County, North Carolina, August 28, 1919. An inventory of the estate was in due 
course filed with the Clerk of the Superior Court of Buncombe County by the 
executrix, Mrs. Mary V. G. Hoist. There was included in the inventory shares of 
stock in certain companies incorporated in other States, and so far as the record 
in this case discloses, such companies owning no property in this State, and which 
the executrix was advised by counsel were not for this reason liable for inheritance 
tax in this State. The said shares of stock were found by the appraiser representing 
the State Tax Commission to be of the value of $120,825.25. The liability of the 
said shares of stock for inheritance tax in this State is contested by counsel in oral 
argument before the Commission and in elaborate brief filed, and the Commission 
is asked to pass upon this question in a formal order. We find no difficulty in holding, 
in line with the policy that has for many years been followed by this State and 
by many other States that such shares of stock by a decedent resident of this State 
are liable for inheritance tax. The legal right of a State to give property of this 
character a situs at the residence of the owner in this State for all purposes of taxa- 
tion is too well established to permit of controversy at this time, even though the 
exercise of this right may, and in some cases does, result in double taxation. It is 
purely a question of policy to be declared by the General Assembly of each State 
as to how far it will go in the exercise of this right. It seems to us none the less clear 
that the General Assembly of this State has declared that property of this character, 
when held by a resident decedent, shall be subject to inheritance tax. The com- 
prehensive language of section 6 of the inheritance tax statute covers "all real and 
personal property of whatever kind and nature which shall pass by will or by the 
intestate laws of this State from any person who may die seized or possessed of the 
same while a resident of this State," etc. 

The property in question is personal property. 

Title to it passes by will filed for probate in the resident county of the decedent 
in this State. 

The decedent died seized and possessed of it while a resident of this State. 

Its liability meets every element of the statute and understanding that the General 
Assembly enacted this statute within its constitutional rights, it is 

Ordered, That the Clerk of the Superior Court of Buncombe County calculate 
the tax upon the appraised value of the estate, including these shares of stock and 
proceed to collect the tax imposed by section 6 of the inheritance tax act upon same.

SALISBURY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, et al. v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY 
COMPANY— IN RE PASSENGER TRAIN SERVICE AND ROUTING 
OF TRAINS 21 AND 22. 

By the Commission : At the beginning of the war period a substantial reduction 
in passenger train service became imperative to provide equipment for movement 
of troops and supplies, to conserve rolling stock, fuel and man power. Four local 
trains, two in each direction, on the Winston-Salcm division were discontinued and 
trains numbers 21 and 22, formerly routed via Salisbury, were routed via Winston- 
Salem and made to serve in place of the four local trains that were discontinued. 
This arrangement left a service over the Salisbury route that was at least tolerable 
for the war period, as it left three trains in each direction between Salisbury and 
Asheville and adequate service on the main north and south line. 

The routing of trains 21 and 22, however, took them away from Sahsbury by a 
gap of eleven miles between Salisbury and Barber Junction, eleven miles west of 
Salisbury, so that by this gap these trains were out of reach of travel from Salisbury 
proper, and out of reach of travel converging at Salisbury from points south of Salis- 
bury, and from points Salisbury to Greensboro, and from travel on branch lines 
feeding the main line at High Point, Thomasville, Lexington, and Salisbury. The 
traveling public of lower Guilford, Davidson, Row^an, Cabarrus, Randolph, and 
Stanly were thus cut off from a long established and convenient means of east and 
west travel. 

On the other band the people of upper Guilford, Forsythe, and Davie, and fed 
by branch lines from Wilkes, Surry, Stokes, and Rockingham represent an import- 
ant section of the State that has developed the largest city in the State, and one 
that furnishes more revenue to the Southern Railway than any other city on the 
lines of their entire system. This section still has nothing more than the minimum 
Part 1—3 



34 N. O. CORPORATION COMMISSION 

war service and no through service whatever except trains 21 and 22. Whatever 
the conditions that gave them this one through train they feel strongly that they 
are entitled to nothing less than they have. 

The progressive little City of Mooresville was represented at the hearing to plead 
the poverty of their train service, reduced in the war period to the very minimum of 
one train each way per day between Mooresville and Winston-Salem via Barber 
Junction and between Mooresville and Salisbury via Barber Junction. 

There can be no doubt of the understanding that the reduced passenger train 
service on account of the war was to be restored, and it was cheerfully accepted on 
this basis. Some of it has not been restored because transportation conditions are 
still about as chaotic as at any time during the war period. Transportation lines 
are still maintained on Government guarantee of pre-war earnings, embargoes are 
still with us, equipment of every kind is inadequate and coal with which to run 
trains is scarcer and higher than at any time during the war. These conditions 
admonish us that demands upon transportation companies for additional service 
must be measured with moderation, and such service as they can with reason be 
expected to render must be distributed with consideration of the necessities of all 
the people served by them. 

The people on the Mooresville branch are the poorest served, with their one 
train each way per day. The restoration of their other local train, and operated 
between Charlotte, Barber Junction and Salisbury, on a schedule that will connect 
with number 22 from Asheville, at Barber for Salisbury, and returning connect 
at Barber with number 21 at Barber for Asheville, will not only restore their local 
train that is badly needed, but will supply the broken link between trains 21 and 22 
and Salisbury and with all the other travel from points south of Greensboro con- 
verging at Salisbury. 

The time cannot be far distant when the operation of trains 21 and 22 in double 
sections all the way between Goldsboro and Asheville will be the penalty of the 
popularity of these through east and west trains. All its coaches are crowded, its 
chair car accommodations totally inadequate, and it finds it difficult to make its 
schedule with its present equipment. We have seriously considered requiring at 
this time their operation in two sections west of Greensboro, and one section of 
through cars over each of the routes represented in the conflicting interests at the 
hearing in this case, and but for the general conditions of transportation, as above 
stated, we would have no hesitation or difficulty in ordering that this be done. We 
are making these observations at this time for the double purpose of putting the 
Southern Railway Company on notice that it may have in contemplation the inaug- 
uration of this character of service not later than the beginning of the next summer 
season, and of advising other parties interested that the adjustment made in this 
order is deemed a temporary one, made within the limitations which the difficulties 
of transportation companies impose upon us at this time. We find no difficulty in 
holding that the public served by each of these routes is entitled to through east and 
west passenger service with the best of modern equipment operated through between 
Goldsboro and Asheville over each of these routes, and it is our purpose to require 
nothing less than that. 

For some months there has been an insistent demand that the train on the Char- 
lotte-Mooresville line leave Charlotte at a later hour in the afternoon. This could 
not be met without breaking a connection of importance with train number 21, at 
Statesville. The train herein ordered to be put on between Charlotte and Salis- 
bury will make this connection at Barber, and it is suggested that when this additional 
train is put on the Southern Railway Company change the schedule of its train 
number 24 to leave Charlotte at a later hour in the afternoon. 



DECISIONS AND ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS 35 

Upon careful consideration of all the interests and conditions presented, it is 

Ordered, That the Southern Railway Company inaugurate on Sunday, August 
1, 1920, an additional daily passenger train service between Charlotte, Mooresville, 
Barber Junction, and Salisbury, on a schedule substantially as follows: 

Train to leave Charlotte 11:30 A. M. and arrive Barber Junction 1:15 P. M., 
connecting there with number 22 from Asheville and arrive at Salisbury 2 P. M. 
Returning, leaving Sahsbury at 2:30 P. M. after arrival of train number 45 at Salis- 
bury, arrive Barber Junction 3:15 P. M. connecting with number 21 for Asheville 
and arrive at Charlotte 5:10 P. M. 

And it is further ordered, That this cause be continued for further order.

IN RE PETITIONS FOR AUTHORITY TO INCREASE RATES FOR GAS— 
THE CAROLINA POWER AND LIGHT COMPANY, THE GOLDSBORO 
GAS AND FUEL COMPANY, THE NEW BERN GAS AND FUEL COM- 
PANY, THE SOUTHERN GAS AND IMPROVEMENT COMPANY, 
THE SOUTHERN PUBLIC UTILITIES COMPANY, THE WASHING- 
TON GAS COMPANY, THE WINSTON-SALEM GAS COMPANY, PETI- 
TIONERS TO THE COMMISSION. 

By the Commission: At the beginning of the war period the Commission author- 
ized a moderate increase in rates for the companies furnishing gas in the cities of 
the State. The reports of these companies made annually to the Commission show 
that none of them have made a fair return in any year on the increased rates granted. 
It may be said that they have merely struggled through the war period, hoping for 
some remuneration for the capital invested in the enterprises of furnishing this very 
necessary commodity, after the war-inflated prices had receded. But prices for the 
commodities that go into the production of gas have been jumping by leaps and 
bounds within the last few months until they are on the present market perhaps 
three times as high as at any time during the war. Nearly all of these companies 
have filed statements showing that rates they are now permitted to charge do not 
cover the out-of-pocket cost of manufacturing and distributing gas to their cus- 
tomers, leaving out of account any return whatever on the money invested to 
provide this service, and even leaving out of account any reserve whatever for depre- 
ciation in the properties that manufacture and distribute it. In short, they are 
aU headed for bankruptcy if relief is not promptly given. 

The Mayors of the principal cities interested in the proper spirit of desiring to 
protect their citizens from paying an exorbitant rate for gas, have taken measures 
to have thorough audits made of the financial condition and accounting methods of 
these companies, and to secure the services of a reputable engineer to investigate 
their plant conditions and methods with the view of making such representations 
to the Commission, in the hearing of these cases, as will be helpful in arriving at 
such rates as will be fair alike to the petitioning companies and their patrons. These 
investigations will require thirty to sixty days to complete them. 

Under these conditions it seems necessary to authorize an immediate increase in 
rates, such increase in rates to be subject to refund upon order of the Commission, 
if, after the investigation and final hearing a rate less than that now authorized is 
found to be reasonable. The petitioning companies all insist that the rates asked 



36 N. C. COEPOEATION COMMISSION 

for are not predicated upon the expectation of making a fair return upon their prop- 
erty during the present peak of high prices for coal and coal oil used in producing gas. 

For the purpose of a temporary order we are reciting the contentions of the peti- 
tioners. No findings of fact are made or conclusions reached that will prejudice a 
fair determination of these questions at the final hearing. To meet temporarily 
the emergency conditions and upon the conditional rebate herein specified, it is 

Ordered, That applicable to meter readings at the regular times in the month 
of August, 1920, for gas consumed in the previous month, and thereafter until

DURHAM TRACTION COMPANY TO THE COMMISSION— IN RE PETI- 
TION FOR AUTHORITY TO INCREASE STREET CAR FARES TO 
TEN CENTS. 

By the Commission : The petition of the Durham Traction Company to increase 
street car fares in Durham from seven cents, four tickets for twenty-five cents, to 



40 N. O. COEPOEATION COMMISSION 

ten cents and three tickets for twenty-five cents, is denied, for the reasons herein- 
after set out, and from and after September first the fares herein authorized may be 
charged. 

At the hearing in this case evidence was presented tending to show that the 
operating revenues of the street railway 'Hnes justified the increase in fares peti- 
tioned for, and that this increase would yield less than a fair return on the fair value 
of the property. There is, however, charged into operating expenses as "maintenance 
of ways" an item of $32,324.03, due to the fact that during the last year the peti- 
tioner was subjected to very heavy expense in changing grade and laying new rails 
to conform to new street grade lines. Only a part of the cost of new rails was charged 
to this item. None of this extraordinary expenditure is properly chargeable to operat- 
ing expense. It should be chargeable either to capitalization or depreciation reserve. 
The financial operation of the company in the past has not permitted accumulation 
of depreciation reserve, but this does not make this item a proper charge against 
operating expense as a basis for higher fares. 

We find that the petitioner is entitled to larger earnings, and that larger earnings 
are in fact essential if this very necessary public service is maintained in a healthy 
state. But we are not convinced that a ten cents fare is justified on its present 
operating showing, of that if justified it is the proper remedy for its troubles. They 
make the estimate that if the increased fare is granted one-half of the increase will 
be absorbed in decreased patronage by reason of the higher fare. There are some 
evidences that operating costs have passed the peak. Coal prices are expected to 
take a rapid tumble from the peak made for it by methods little less disreputable 
than those of the highwaymen. We do not believe that the remedy for the diffi- 
culties of street railway transportation is continually increasing fares to an extent 
that will operate to materially decrease patronage. 

The operating revenues of this particular company, and the fact that its power is 
derived from steam coal, convince us that it is entitled to some increase in fares, 
and it is 

Ordered, That from and after five days from the date of this order, and until 
further ordered, it may charge cash fares of eight cents and ticket fares of four 
tickets for thirty cents. 

This the 1st day of September, 1920. 

Lee, Chairman^ dissenting: 

I cannot concur in the order made in the above case for the following reasons: 

First. It is not contended that the rate prescribed in the order will produce a 
fair return on the value of the property devoted to the service. 

Second. I do not think that it is just to tax this class of property at a value more 
than they are allowed to earn a fair return. 

Third. I do not think it to be a good public policy to pursue a course that will 
deprive our cities and towns of active, live, healthy public utilities, able to function 
in the most efficient manner, and to extend to the suburban sections of the cities 
thereby giving all the population an efficient service. 

Reference made in the order to an item of $32,324.00 charged to operating expense 
that should have been charged to permanent improvement; granting that it should 
have been so charged, after charging five per cent for depreciation only about 
$1,100.00 would remain over operating expense for the year ending January 1, 1920. 

For these reasons, without enlarging on none, I refuse to concur in the order of 
the Commission. 

This the 1st day of September, 1920.

AMENDED AND SUPPLEMENTAL PETITION FOR INCREASE OF 
REVENUES IN THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 



By the Commission: In the above entitled proceeding authority is sought by 
all steam railroad lines operating within the State of North Carolina to increase 
rates and charges to the same extent and in the same proportion as authorized 
for interstate transportation into and out of the State of North Carolina by the 
Interstate Commerce Commission in Ex Parte 74, the said increased rates and 
charges being as follows : 

Increase in all freight transportation rates and charges, 25 per cent. 

Excess baggage rates, 20 per cent. 

Surcharge upon passengers in sleeping or parlor cars of 50 per cent of the charge 
for space in such cars, such charge to be collected in connection with the charge 
for space and to accrue to the rail carriers. 

Increase in milk and cream rates carried in passenger trains, 20 per cent. 

The foregoing rates and charges have been authorized in interstate transporta- 
tion by the Interstate Commerce Commission after a most comprehensive investi- 
gation made for the purpose of providing for the carriers the amount of return 
upon their property required by Act of Congress of the United States. The in- 
vestigation by the Interstate Commerce Commission was made jointly with repre- 
sentatives of the National Association of Railway and Utilities Commissioners, to 
the end that such increase as was found to be necessary to comply with the Act 
of Congress might be made uniformly and contemporaneously to apply to all rates 
for interstate and intrastate transportation. 

The North Carolina Corporation Commission attended meeting of the National 
Association of the Railway and Utilities Commissioners when representatives of 
the State Commissions were designated to participate with the Interstate Com- 
merce Commission in making this investigation. The Corporation Commission 
was represented at the principal hearings held by the Interstate Commerce Com- 
mission in Ex Parte 74, and a transcript of the full record in that proceeding is 
made a part of the record in the pending case. 

A public hearing before the Corporation Commission upon the pending applica- 
tion of the carriers was held in the office of the Commission in Raleigh on August 
23, 1920. At this hearing no objection was made by any shipper to granting the 
increase in rates in line with the increase in interstate rates, but protest was made 
by the North Carolina Traffic Association to granting the increase in intrastate 
rates until final disposition was made of the proceeding now pending before the 
Interstate Commerce Commission involving interstate rates into and out of North 
Carolina. The Corporation Commission is party to this said proceeding and in 
full sympathy with the allegation of discrimination in existing interstate rates, 
but in a matter involving official responsibility we cannot accept the view that 
we should take the responsibifity of setting up a discrimination in intrastate rates 
by refusing to permit a percentage increase in rates equal to the percentage in- 
crease made uniformly in interstate rates and generally authorized by other 
State Commissions in intrastate rates. 

The proper procedure seems to us to be : 

To give authority for the equal increase in intrastate rates and charges, and to 
look with continued confidence to the Interstate Commerce Commission to pro- 
vide such rates for interstate transportation as will remove existing discrimination 
in these rates. 



70 N. C. COEPOEATION COMMISSIOISI 

Section 2630 of the North Carohna Statutes requires fifteen days notice before 
increased rates may be made effective. It is 

Ordeeed, That all the North Carolina carriers, parties to and on whose behalf 
this application is made, may file with the Corporation Commission general sup- 
plement in blanket form to existing rates and charges increasing such rates and 
charges to the same extent and proportion as the increase covered in the pending 
application and authorized by the Interstate Commerce Commission, applicable to 
interstate transportation, and that such rates may become effective for transporta- 
tion between points in North Carolina within fifteen days after the filing of the 
supplemental tariffs herein authorized. It is 

Further ordered, That, inasmuch as this order is granted in blanket form, 
and is not based upon investigation in detail of the effect of such increase as appli- 
cable to each particular rate and commodity, this order is not to be taken as final 
approval of every such rate, fare, or charge that may be filed under authority of 
this order, and that all such rates, fares, and charges are subject to investigation 
and correction on complaint, or on the Commission's own motion, to the same 
extent as if this order had not been made. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

This the 27th day of August, 1920. Clerk.
